An interesting article from India discusses godna, a traditional form of tattooing which has been dying out – a sad reality for many tribal traditions all around the world.
On the other side of the world, “Inked,” a photo exhibit shows how strong the modern form of tattooing has been growing (relatively) recently.
What’s the answer for this “phenomenon”? Maybe the key is our own taste and self-expression? Whens something is regulated by the common norms, long traditions and social rules we are more prone to leave it behind while something that is “our own” deserves cherishing and opposing the others?
